Ugly Primo is one artist you should definitely be following. He has taken so many Latino pop culture moments and turned them into art that’s just divine. You’ll never see his face because he hides behind a puppet as his persona, but it low key works with his art aesthetic. Check out some of his art below and prepare to bask in some great Latino pop art.
Ugly Primo is already rubbing elbows with some up and coming Latino stars.
Do you recognize this piece of art? It is Cuco’s EP cover for ’Chiquito’ illustrated by Ugly Primo. See. You already know his art and never knew it.
He’s even besties with the one and only Bad Bunny.
Ugly Primo has created custom pieces for Cuco, Bad Bunny, and so many other artists in the music industry. It’s like they are all elevating each other because that’s how Latinos do.
But it isn’t all serious work. He will take all kinds of artistic liberty and it’s amazing.
Just when you thought Bad Bunny had secured his tough guy persona, this Easter bunny comes around. Like, talk about showing off a softer side.
Tbh, the #1 Daddy mug for Daddy Yankee is perfect.
￼A el le gusta el cafecito, dale más cafecito. Even with sunglasses on, Ugly Primo caught Daddy Yankee’s sweet twinkle in his eyes.
Literally taking Maluma Baby to the next level.
Who knew Maluma could be such a daddy while still single. One thing is for sure, that baby looks well taken care of.
You can’t forget the Caribbean icons that gave the U.S. a taste of Latin music.
And it’s even better that her face is on a bag of sugar. Maybe it is too cliché but it never gets old.
Elvis Crespo as fabric softener just makes sense.
I feel like dancing but at the same time smell Downy so strong that it’s like I am currently doing laundry. Suavemente lavame.
He’ll even help you profess your love for Cardi B.
Who isn’t in love with this rapper right now? We can only assume she has love and fan letters coming to her everyday.
A Latino pop culture collection isn’t complete with El Chacal.
If you don’t know who this is, fuera! This guy lived on everyones TV on Saturday nights. It’s actually strange not to see him on the TV when you are making and eating dinner.
Ugly Primo even perfectly captured our childhood terror with a simple image called “El Trio.”
Suddenly you hear, “Te calmas o te calmo.” Not only are you now scared, you are confused. Like, you’re grown, living on your own but you still know mami can find you.
Obviously, El Diablote makes an appearance because it’s an honest representation.
￼I don’t remember this card, but diablote sounds like an understatement. If you win would you say buenas or magas? Guess it depends on what you think of your family/community.
Oh yeah, he also invented Tapendejo.
￼The weakest hot sauce known to man. It’s for all the people who think they are big and bad but really just watered down excuses for human beings.
Speaking of things that don’t quite make sense…
Are people still doing this? We hope not but the imagery is too perfect a representation that you’ll cry from shame.
But we all know who the real hero is, El Chapulin Colorado.
￼More agile than a turtle, stronger than a mouse, more noble than a lettuce, his symbol is a heart. At least someone is holding it down for us.
You can never go wrong with depicting a celebratory Lionel Messi.
￼This will get you up off your feet and clapping with your tios and tias. It’s just impossible to hear that song and not clap along.
Guillermo Ochoa is one wall Trump doesn’t want to mess with.
￼Trump asked for a wall and Mexico gave him one. I need Memo Ochoa to guard my girl’s DMs, thb. Nothing gets past him.
There’s always room to make fun of a old-school tradition, like baptisms.
In the name of the father the son and a modelo. The way tios welcome newborns to the family. Where’s the lie?
We do get moments to see Ugly Primo straight chilling, like watching the World Cup.
Unfortunately, his dreams of Mexico winning was destroyed and we’re afraid the community will never really recover. Hopefully Ugly Primo can bounce back from the defeat.
He even understands regular people’s lives, which is important to staying humble.
Ugly Primo has been gaining fame with his little skits. Here he shows how the Fourth of July goes down in the hood and it’s too real.
We may never know what the real Ugly Primo looks like, but at least we have the puppet.
￼His puppet has taken on a life of it’s own. Make sure you keep up to see what shenanigans he gets himself into.
